The All-Star center scored 14 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in the 99-90 loss. This after Davis sat out the fourth quarter of Friday night's home victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Some voices in the Pelicans organization supported not playing Davis after the team decided not to trade the All-Star by Thursday's trade deadline, sources previously told ESPN. The Pelicans, according to sources, were told by the NBA they would be subject to a fine of $100,000 per game if Davis were benched.
Davis and the team agreed that his minutes would be reduced and that Davis would consult with the Pelicans on which ends of back-to-backs he will play in the rest of the season, sources told ESPN.
